3.14 is Pi Day-Bring a Pie! Project Swell Fieldtrip on Friday, 17th

3.14 is Pi–Bring a Pie to School to Celebrate
Let’s Celebrate the wonderful magic of Pi.  Bring a pie to school on Tuesday, March 14th (3/14) to measure and share.  We’ll figure out what Pi is, then eat them!

Math
Most of our students are doing great working with volume.  They are needing a little more practice with breaking objects into two rectangular prisms to solve the total volume.  Check in with your child before we take the end of Unit Assessement  for topic 10.  Also remember to go over their quick checks quizzes to clear up any misconceptions and practice similar problems.   I’m expecting that we will take Topic 10 assessment on Wednesday or Thursday.

Fieltrip to the Water Purification Plant 
On Friday, March 17th we will visit the Water Purification Plant, courtesy of Project Swell.  This will be a fascinating look at one of the ways that San Diego is planning to conserve water in the future by purifying the fresh water that we are using so that we can use it again!

Be sure to pack a lunch for that day!

Parent Conference Week
Parent Conference Week is March 20th.  I do not need to see everyone this time around, and most parents who I need to see have already set up an appointment.  However if you still would like a conference, I do have a few spots open.  Please let me know through Class Dojo and I will set you up with a time to conference with me.  Remember that this week is minimum day schedule for the students.

Girl Scouts
Girl Scout meetings will start at Nye on Wednesday, March 15th after school.  They have fun activities for girls to learn by.   Girls Scouts will hold meeting here for the next four weeks, and they will be recruiting parent leaders to continue on with the program.  This is a great way to be involved with your daughter.  Letters were sent home.  Be sure to check in with your daughters.

Scholastic Book Club
Please check the catalogues and place your order online  by Wednesday, March 15th.  You can order from any of the available catalogues online.   If this is your first time ordering online, you will need to enter our class code:  QJ3YR

Some of our students are reading a wonderful book, Inside Out and Back Again, by Thanhha Lai.  This book is currently on sale for $1.00 in the book club.  Another recommendation is The Lemonade War , by Jaqueline Davis which is also on sale for $1.00 until the end of this month.  Check it out!

Remember to Bring a Sack Lunch and snack for our Fieldtrip to the Mingei Museum to see  Erik Gronberg on Friday March 10th.
